Valencia look to push on the miles as they take on Bilbao who will be a bit tired from their Europa League exploits and will know they have a chance to get 3 points here to distance them from the relegation zone. Despite not having found a victory in their last 3 games with a 0-0 against Betis, a 4-0 loss to Eibar and a 3-1 loss to las Palmas; they will have to turn to their home form to help them progress to the next stages of the competition. Defensively, Valencia have been very poor with 21 goals conceded in 9 games. Their games have been heavy scoring with an average of nearly 4 goals in their home games and 19 out of their 21 games have seen a minimum of 2 goals in their games. 78% of their home games have seen over 2.5 goals and 71% of their overall games have passed that mark.
Bilbao have been quite attacking in recent weeks smashing goals in for fun, but also been leaking a lot of goals on the defensive end. Bilbao have scored 8 goals in their last 5 games while conceding 9 goals as well. Their games have seen average of over 2.5 goals conceded in 64% of those games with 15 out of 22 games seeing a minimum of 2 goals recently. Bilbao will probably be exhausted from their tough games in the first leg of the Europa League with a 3-2 victory against APOEL on Thursday night. Bilbao will look to try and steal a quick goal early on to put pressure on a Valencia team who haven’t won in their last 3 games.
